Thread: Gurgel, Sokodjou are out

    Default Gurgel, Sokodjou are out

    Looks like both were cut, not really surprised with Sokodjou even though I like the guy, but with the last fight Gurgel had, i though they might keep him around.

    I just don't believe Gurgel has the talent or skill to compete in the UFC. They literally have to give him a guy that's not going to hurt him too badly, so they can stand in the center of the cage and trade like a couple of miniature tough men contestants. Like the guys heart, but he's just not cut out for the UFC.

    Darn I like Sokoudjou and think he has a lot of talent.

    I like Soko as well, theres still a few fights I would like to have seen.

    I agree with Gurgel not being cut out but he was used as a jobber for newer guys which is fine because he did give some ofthem a fight, his last one was pretty good, I guess that Rich Franklin connection couldnt keep him in.

    Gurgel just got fight of the night - they don't say why in your link. Also appears Alvarez will not be going to the UFC, and he should be fighting in AC in January, the night before Affliction.

    Alvarez is also signed with Bellator Fighting.

    I don't think that he couldn't cut it, I think it's that he always tried to stand and bang when the guy is a BJJ whiz kid. He lost his job because he fought stupid.

    I'm sad about Soko. I like his back

    I completely agree that he should stick to his strength but even when fights have gone to the ground he has been unsuccessful. He was subbed by cole miller, beaten very badly by alvin robinson and even in his latest fight the few times it went to the ground he could do nothing. I would say he is a better teacher than fighter.

    Gurgel signed with Strikeforce. I think it will be a good fit for him at this point.
